One of the top posts in a socialist subreddit featured the addresses of Supreme Court justices that voted to overturn Roe v. Wade. The Reddit users in the anti-capitalist group discussed hunting down Supreme Court justices at their churches and possibly sending them mail bombs.
The alarming threats were made in r/WorkersStrikeBack – a self-described “leftist, anti-capitalist, socialist subreddit that is dedicated to support worker strikes, protests and unions all over the world, address the obvious problems related to an average worker’s workplace, offer advice to a fellow worker struggling with their workplace problems and mock or satirize any kind of anti-worker sentiment.”
The post broadcasted the home addresses of Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, and Neil Gorsuch.
At the time of publication, the post doxxing the Supreme Court justices had been allowed up in the subreddit for more than 22 hours. What is most concerning is the post received nearly 27,000 upvotes in the online socialist community of 97,000 users.
There were over 2,000 comments to the doxxing post – some suggested violence in retaliation for overturning Roe v. Wade.
A Reddit user urged people to hunt Supreme Court justices at their churches.
“Find their churches. The area they live in is super wealthy and they all definitely are part of local bloated churches. Find their churches, they can never be free, because you can track when they’re home by when they they go to their local church.”
One Reddit user asks, “Where are the 2nd homes?”
A mail carrier appears to request that domestic terrorists don’t use the mail service to deliver bombs to Supreme Court justices, but instead called for “more direct action.”
“Socialist mailman here, please don’t send anything that could hurt your mail handlers,” the Redditor wrote. “Accidental tearing happens to mail all the time. I would encourage more direct action at a time like this.”
A Redditor ranted, “Six of these fascist creeps. A mere SIX. 330 MILLION of us. Why are we putting up with this? This is a f***ing WAR now.”
Another Redditor stated, “Politicians are way too comfortable in this country when they’re willing to break precedent to go against 70% of the population to fit their own agenda. Maybe it’s time they felt less comfortable and safe.”
One person said, “Violence is never the answer. It’s the question. And right now, the answer is yes.”
Someone else in the subreddit suggests that they “need to target the police” because “it’ll be them enforcing the abortion bans.”
A user ominously adds, “I’ve been looking for a life purpose.”
